"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

Be An Artist Of The Soul

Creating the life you desire is in itself a true miracle. Understand, I don't say this lightly. It's not that obtaining real, lasting happiness is as sparsely experienced as we think miracles are these days. On the contrary, it's time to start thinking about what miracles really are and how often we dismiss the possibility of seeing them in our own lives.

Keeping A Sharp Creative Mind And Spirit

There are so many cliches flying around where creativity and mental ability are concerned. For example: "Practice makes perfect," or "If you don't use it, you'll lose it," or "Just do it," or "Invention is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration." Well, though all of these sayings have there place and a sense of truth all their own, sometimes we just need someone to tell us what to do to makes something better. I'm going to share some tips that I use to keep my mind and spirit sharp, so when I want to be creative, I am on point.

Creativity Key: Be A Mentor

I heard a saying once that really resonated with my personal experience as a creative person, it says: "If you want to master something, teach it." There are many reasons why this profound truth adds value to your life.

Women’s Creative Communication: Nine Words Or Less

(1) Fine: Women use this word to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up. (2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house. (3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

Creative Things To Do When You Have Insomnia

Wow, so I just got home from a "headache holiday" (a week stay in the hospital.) And, go figure I can't get a wink of sleep to save my life. I'm supposed to be resting, and, well, it' s like 4 A.M. and I'm still tying desperately to fall asleep. I'm not sure what triggered my inability to snooze...

Diehard Creativity: What Does It Take?

In my own pursuit of creative goals, I've realized (sometimes the hard way) that things don't always go the way you hope them to. However, it isn't necessary to understand the "whys" and "hows" of every vision or effort before stepping into a process of getting them done. I do believe that focus and determination rule in the creative arena, though. You have to keep going toward your dreams...no matter what gets in your way. This week I'm being greatly challenged in my physical body to even get anything typed out or on paper. But, you know what? I'm doing it anyway. Because I love what I do and I can't hold in my thoughts because my body doesn't want to cooperate.

Stay Out Of The Blog Graveyard

Blogging can be a lonely way to spend your time. On the other hand, it can be rewarding and bring lots of new acquaintances (even friends) your way. I've been doing this blogging thing for well over two years now and have noticed something: Blog life is very short for some. I often catch myself thinking, where did that blog go or I wonder what made her stop writing. And, you know what, I really miss some of the blogs that are nowhere to be found.

Soaring Feminine Spirit

Sorry about the lateness of my post...it's already Monday in some parts of the world. Anyway, I'd like to share a piece of prose that was an exercise from our exclusive email community. That's why you didn't see it on Women's Creative Life Link. So, if you haven't already signed up for our weekly newsletter, please do today so you don't miss the next issue. The form is in the right sidebar and says "Want To Bring Out Your Creative Mojo?" The exercise was to creatively express your femininity. And because writing is my main form of self-expression, I chose to share the following...

How To Jumpstart Creativity

Being creative isn't something that anyone should take for granted. It's one of those if-you-don't-use-it-you'll-lose-it things. Well, sort of. You won't ever lose natural talents and gifts; those are there to stay. I'm talking about keeping up the momentum and desire to create. Avoiding diving into projects and hobbies, or even work-related creative efforts, can hinder positive emotions and self-growth, especially if you are what I call a "creative soul". Here's why:

One Creative Young Lady Changing The World

I was recently sent a press release about a young girl who is using her creative ideas and huge heart to change the world. Nine-year-old, Lizzie, is folding her way to raise $1,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, and she's already almost halfway to her goal. Her simple idea challenges adults to use talents and creativity to serve mankind in some way. The fact that she's spending her time working for this worthy cause is also a reflection of how she's been raised...praise to you Jennifer for teaching Lizzie the power of thinking outside the box and giving! My hope is that Lizzie surpasses her goal in a big way and even gets opportunities to help on a larger scale. Let's help Lizzy make a difference by reposting this article or sharing it on your social networking pages. If you have your own blog, please write a post about her and what she's doing.

Watching a child play, learn, and just be free is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. And not just for the entertainment value but for the lessons you can glean from his/her unhindered actions.

I've compiled some thoughts about how watching and understanding the child's heart can move us into higher levels of our own creativity.

Why You Want Boredom…Sometimes

It occurred to me that boredom or the state of being bored is not such a bad thing. Yes, it's uncomfortable; it makes you feel useless; it creates a low-energy vibe; and it makes others think you are ungrateful. "Wow, Kellie, that doesn't sound like something I want in my life," you so forcefully say. Hold on there...I have a point.
